Fighting Reckless Driving Charges
In North Carolina, reckless driving can result in fines, points against your driver’s license, license suspension and possibly even jail time. It can mean facing misdemeanor or even felony charges. Such offense will become a part of your driving record. It most certainly will result in higher insurance rates as well. And if accompanied with an accident, you may at some point in time face a civil lawsuit as well.
While taking aggressive action or driving at excessive speeds during certain weather conditions can be considered reckless driving, a reckless driving charge may also come about due to mere carelessness or inattention. Such charges may be based upon the subjective observations of the arresting officer. Because of the harsh consequences of a conviction, it is important to first speak to an experienced traffic violations lawyer before making any plea.
